    I have finally decided to buy the phone off contract from amazon and debating which plan to get.
    1. Gophone- unlimited text,250 minutes, and 500 mb- $50
    2. Straighttalk- $45

    I am really concerned about the speeds on both carriers. Which speed is faster.

    Hopefully tmobile would support AT&T frequencies in the near future because their $30 unlimited text and data is perfect for me.

    Straight Talk IS ATT....it sits on the same network. I get the faux-G speeds of ATT just like I would if I paid those shysters $90 a month. You wll not be able to get MMSs on ST though until Nokia brings the connection setup app back to marketplace.

    The only reason you should be considering GoPhone is the fact that you'll be able to receive MMS messages. Other than that, you have infinitely better options. StraightTalk, Jolt, Red Pocket, and others will give you unlimited talk, text, and at least 2GB of data/month at 4G (HSPA+ though, not LTE) speeds.

    Again, the only drawback is that since Nokia withdrew its Network Setup app from the marketplace, you will not be able to send/receive MMS messages with services other than AT&T itself.

    You also won't get the $100 rebate from Nokia. You only get that as an account credit on your AT&T bill. Something to consider.

    data plans are soon to be eliminated from GoPhone so this won't even matter.
